Icky, bloody vampire sequel.

"Twilight" popularly defined vampire cinema in the Zeroes. But Team Blade could execute every last sullen Cullen. When Blade turns full vampire - suplexing and flying-elbow-dropping people like a crazy Mexican luchador - 'tis pure fanboy nirvana.

Kris Kristofferson reprises his role as geezer Blade sidekick as blood splashes in all directions and legions of bodies incinerate before our eyes.

ather than a by the numbers sequel, Director Guillermo Del Toro has changed the tone by not only significantly increasing the amount of action & fighting, but adding a little bit of humour into the mix.

A totally gross-out film that has about as much depth as its comic-book inspiration, which is probably why it's so entertaining.

Surpassed the original in every way.

The joy in Blade II simply comes from watching Snipes as Blade doing his thing -- destroying vampires and whipping out martial arts on whomever gets too close.

The borderline-chaotic fight scenes, set to a deafeningly loud rap-rock/heavy metal score, are directed and edited for maximum kinetic impact.

Popcorn nonsense for sure, but shot with a wit, skill and understanding of its audience all too rarely seen in the genre.

It's so much adrenaline-pumped B-movie fun, it's nearly worth full price.

The fast-paced action is unnervingly fast, almost dizzying. The story is thin, the plot is predictable, but Wesley Snipes carries this comic book character off with enough clever humor and self-indulgent pathos to carry it off.

The addition of just enough original ideas, has been, and hopefully will remain the key to keeping the franchise fresh, original and exciting.

More fun than shooting a cannon full of razor blades into a cattle pen . . . the biggest problem I had, however, was the lack of any real compelling central villain

With a confidence that would verge on the arrogant if they hadn't got the smarts to back it up, del Toro and Snipes have shamed the competition with their flair, set pieces and badass wit.

Blade II merges bits and pieces from fighting games, wire fu, horror movies, mystery, James Bond, wrestling, sci-fi and anime into one big bloody stew.

The action is more heavily stylized and energetic, not to mention Del Toro gives Snipes greater opportunity to show off his martial arts moves.

Vampire epic succeeds as spooky action-packed trash of the highest order.

Benefits greatly from the presence of Mexican horror maestro director Guillermo del Toro, delivering action, blood, gore and guts in crowd-pleasing fashion.
